    Re: The Greatest Programs of All-Time: #1-#59

    Question: Can Michigan Tech fans ever manage to not complain about the NCHC? It seems that any chance they get, they take to tell everyone else how stupid and unnecessary they think it all was. Do they think everyone will forget if they don't mention it once a week?

    The irony is how many of the teams that were left behind have shut down their program since the money train left town. Let's check... zero. I don't see anyone in the WCHA with their hand out looking to be "saved"... well except Mankato. Clearly they are not up to the task of pulling their own weight.

    Call it BH or whatever you want... maybe Tech fans are just smart enough to call it like they see it and not blindly follow the masses proclaiming how great the addition of the NCHC was for college hockey... "Oh my gosh we'll never keep up with the Bi6... We have to form a new conference or we'll all die... Hurry and follow me.... Ahhhhhhh!"

UND and the other teams in the NCHC don't owe teams they left behind in the wcha squat. Maybe tech should file for disability.
    yup, got yourselves away from the leeches, like CC and WMU...what exactly do they bring to the table? Not to mention, what money does DU bring to the rest of the conference?

A conference which would reap the annual financial windfall of playing with each other all season long and the only real suspense of the season would be who ended up with the extra penny when league revenues ended in an odd number. This conference would undoubtedly also have a strict policy not to play non-conference games against Michigan Tech and the other remaining team so they could completely kill off the sport rather than having to support the "bottom feeders".

    Omaha moved up six places with their FF appearance the year before (45th to 39th), and Minnesota State moved up six places over the past two years (46th to 40th). So, it is no doubt easier to move up multiple places from the bottom third of the list, although BU and PC jumped three places in 2015 (7th to 4th, and 24th to 21st, respectively).
    Even better, with five-place jump by Quinnipiac, best one season increase since Omaha last year.

    #26 – QUINNIPIAC BOBCATS

    Points: 44.80692 Points
    Points earned in 2015-2016 16.6032 Points
    Points earned in past five seasons: 40.73562 Points
    Last Season Ranking: #31


    The Bobcats had a tremendous year with a program best record of 32-4-7, won the ECAC regular season title and playoffs, going to the national championship game, where they came up short in their quest for the program’s first national championship.

    #27 – NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH

    Points: 41.18507 Points
    Points earned in 2015-2016 0.4423 Points
    Points earned in past five seasons: 4.28877 Points
    Last Season Ranking: #26


    The Fighting Irish have had a lot of success in the past ten years, with only one losing record and several 20+ win seasons. They will need more post-season success to move up in these rankings. The big news is that they are moving to the B1G starting in the ’17-’18 season.

    #28 – DARTMOUTH BIG GREEN

    Points: 40.42622 Points
    Points earned in 2015-2016 0.1748 Points
    Points earned in past five seasons: 5.10262 Points
    Last Season Ranking: #27


    Despite having only one losing season in the last five years, the Big Green aren’t making any progress in these rankings. They have gone 18-16-1, 17-12-4, 10-20-4, 15-14-5 and 16-16-5. They will have a challenge this season, after ten seniors graduated and with eleven freshmen coming in.

    It certainly doesn't surprise me that a bu fan doesn't know what the acronym GOAT stands for... I mean, bu isn't even the greatest in their own city.
